    Shimano XTR 1x10 questions

    To convert the M980 crankset to a single ring, does it matter if you use the double or triple ring crankset? Would there be a difference in the chainline?

    Also, going to a 34t front and 11-36 rear, looks like the GS Shadow plus is the right length RD. But it seems like people favor the SGS - why?

    There are two doubles for M980. I'd say don't pick the racing double, the other one with bash or the triple are the same crank AFAIK, pick one of them and the middle ring position should give you the best chainline.

    I'd use the shorter der. cage as you won't need much chain capacity.
